Processed meat is expected to exhibit high gains in light of increasing demand for processed meat coupled with increasing disposable income in emerging countries. Moreover, rising consumer awareness regarding animal protein rich diet and large varieties of processed meat available in the market at lower prices is further expected to boost the demand for processed meat. However, health awareness regarding consumption of processed meat due to its side effects may curb the market growth. Nonetheless, meat consumption in developing countries is continuously increasing. Thus, increasing demand from emerging economies is expected to open up new growth opportunities within the forecast period.

Some of the key products include cured processed, uncured processed and others.
